CIRAS is uniquely placed.  By listening to the concerns and suggestions of workers across transport and infrastructure that they are not raising openly, we have the opportunity to pick up early signals of emerging issues and trends before they show up in accident or incident data.

The breadth of our community also means that we can look for patterns that cut across traditional company or sector boundaries.

We analyse the concerns raised to identify trends in the themes, root causes and location.  Members can access these to compare with their own analyses of incidents or internal reports to build a complete picture.

Learning from why people choose to report confidentially can be just as important as understanding the issue they are reporting.  We track the trends in what is driving people to speak up in confidence as a valuable input to members, as they continue to improve their reporting culture.
